At Coastal Framing and Design, our team offers you a professional, quality, wide format printing and custom framing service that will ensure your own photos look sensational hanging on your wall. We guarantee it. Read on to find out how….
We specialise in wide format printing using FINE ART photographic papers or canvas.
We can print your photos onto the following Fine Art papers:
- Hahnemuhle Fine Art Cotton Rag – 308gsm
- Hahnemuhle Lustre Fine Art paper
- German Etching Fine Art paper giving a watercolour, textured look
- Metallic Pearl – A Fine Art paper giving a silky, high gloss metallic finish to your images
- Canvas – Epson Satin or Matt finish canvas ready to stretch onto quality, pine stretcher bars.
Jen is a qualified, professional photographer having a Diploma of Freelance Photography and her passion, care and attention to detail are important factors in printing your photographic images.
That’s why, for the best printing on offer, your images are printed on the Epson 9900 wide format printer. Calibration of the computer screen with the printer is regularly updated and accurate.
How do I send my images for printing?
You can send your digital files via email or dropbox: email@example.com
or bring them into our shop at 5/25 Industry Drive Tweed Heads South, via a USB or CD.
For serious printing, we prefer TIFF files, as large as possible in their original format.
We accept a JPEG file of 4-8 MB or larger for the purpose of a print and frame package with a 90cm x 60cm print.
The best thing about getting it right, is that we can spend the time to personalise your photos and create wonderful masterpieces for your walls:
Photoshop alterations such as converting a colour image to black and white, sepia, cropping, sizing, and altering images are always fun to do.
For the young at heart, we can use photoshop filters to create unique pop art, and playful images from your photos to frame up for your walls.
Photo restoration: If you discover the old, family photos of years gone by, we can scan or photograph them, restoring them back to life for the next generation to enjoy.
The team can also talk you through the different options available to print your images to canvas and wrap them onto quality pine bars. You may like to add a timber float frame to give your finished, canvas photo art work a more stylish appeal.
Collages: If you can’t decide on what photos you love the best, you may like to bring in a selection of images to print and frame as a collage of memories: Travel, family, landscapes, baby photos, wedding, engagement and special events are perfect for this.
Typography: For something personal and unique, you may consider adding a personalised message, location, text, or name to a photo print. This is a great gift idea for that special person who has everything!
Here at Coastal Framing, we specialise in wide format printing and custom framing oversize, with large prints possibly having the shortest side at 1000mm wide – This is best for your surf images, landscapes and these can be framed with acrylic rather than glass, to keep them light weight and shatter free.
For your convenience, we can arrange delivery of your oversize framing for an additional cost.
For a quicker and less expensive print and frame option, we offer a quality print and frame package utilising our Australian Made range of off the shelf , ready made frames.
As part of our loyalty program, we may offer GICLEE printing to artists who frame with us. Using specialised lighting in our photo studio, a high resolution photograph of the original art work is taken and from the digital file, a print ‘run’ of prints, or a print and frame package, is created. This is a specialised, limited service offered by negotiation, as conditions such as the size of the original art work, the art medium used, and the use of white in the art work is a consideration for achieving the best results.
Here is our guideline for our printing costs. Multiples attract a discount as do print and frame packages. Custom prices and quotes are available at consultation or via email when exact specifications are given.
5×7: minimum of 5 prints $8 each to go into a print and frame package
A4: minimum of 2 prints $12 each – to go into a print and frame package
The widest print can be 100cm on the shortest side and as long as the roll of paper.
We are excited to offer you special pricing on standard sized prints on fine art paper of your choice: (includes GST)
A3 297mm x 420mm $32
A2 420mm x 594mm $45

We believe in correct colour matching and a ‘proof’ can be printed as a strip through the centre of your image for $12 per proof. However, our calibration is done regularly and this is not usually necessary.
Canvas print and frame packages are a package price and are available on request.
